Product Design & Manufacture

Got a new idea that needs a PV panel to power it? We can help you by designing a panel to fit your product and to match the electrical requirements of your system.

There are many products that require a small amount of power to operate them, and cannot be connected to the electricity grid because of remote location or the cost of connection.

We have been making PV systems for specialist equipment for decades and have vast experience of the operation of PV-battery stand-alone supply design. The sizing of the battery and PV modules are vital in ensuring that a system will operate successfully for a long lifetime. The choice of voltage for the system, the optimisation of energy use, and the confidence factor required for the job are all important factors in this process.

 We manufacture panels using many different materials and can provide a shape and size to match the product on which they are mounted. We have designed products for use in many environments including, marine, urban, industrial, high altitude and high latitudes.

 We have a wide range of test equipment and can verify the operation of prototype systems in many simulated conditions.

Local School Learns About PV Slate Installation

This week, GB-Sol had a special visit from pupils at Hawthorn High School. Working with Newydd Housing Association, they are designing a digital bench at a Pontypridd Church. It will provide a sheltered place for the homeless to sleep, and include USB charging facilities powered by solar.

The students brought along their roof frame and GB-Sol’s PV Product Manager, Lloyd Symonds, taught the school pupils how to install the PV Slates. These were fixed to the South elevation with natural slates on the opposite pitch.

A special charging pack was designed including two USB ports and an LED light. This will be connected to a battery to allow use of the electricity outside of daylight hours.

GB-Sol work on all sorts of unique projects, if you’d like our can help with yours, please get in touch.

The Biggest Solar Panel Yet

This week, GB-Sol succeeded in manufacturing the largest module in its 20 year solar manufacturing history.

GB-Sol are always keen to take on any challenge and producing a panel bigger than ever before was especially interesting. Each panel measuring 3.1m x 1.4m was composed of two layers of 6mm glass. They weighed over 120kg and required specialist equipment to transport around the factory.

Each one contained 90 solar PV cells providing 425Wp.

If you have any unusual solar PV requirements, GB-Sol are here to come up with a solution. Please get in touch today.
